the update attribute needs to be better described to communicate a sense of
its intended purpose; at present, section 4.7.5 only says "The upload attribute
must return the associated XMLHttpRequestUpload object."

it says nothing about the function of the XMLHttpRequestUpload object and why,
for example, there needs to be two distinct XMLHttpRequestEventTargets;

furthermore, the spec should state that the upload objects are distinct across
different XMLHttpRequest objects (at the moment, this seems merely to be
assumed); i.e., each distinct XMLHttpRequestUpload object is associated with a
distinct XMLHttpRequest object
